Eyelid Growth Removal including Chalazion

Eyelid Growth Removal including Chalazion

Although growths on the eyelids may sometimes represent skin cancer, most of the time they are benign. Removal can be warranted to eliminate the disfigurement they cause or to relieve bothersome symptoms like itching and scaling. A chalazion (stye) is an area of eyelid swelling and inflammation associated with blocked oil glands. In many cases, warm compresses can allow for resolution of these painful growths, but in some cases surgical drainage (lancing) is required to allow them to fully resolve.

Dr. Sullivan provides the convenience of removing eyelid growths (including chalazion) during the first appointment. Through a combination of topical and injected numbing medication, this procedure can be accomplished with minimal to no discomfort.
